Foundation


Foundation News
Two Foundation products have been announced for this year. First there'll be "Foundation: Directors Cut" which is a re-release of the original Foundation, containing version 1.25, supporting graphics cards, gouraud shading and more special effects. Regarding the very low price (£14.99) of the re-release this is the chance for everyone who "forgot" to buy this game 'til now.
The second one will be "Foundation Edge", which is Foundation, completely rewritten in portable C++ (which could mean a PPC version of Foundation) and a totally different interface. The Foundation's Edge Homepage is already online. More information will be available there by the end of the week.
Update News:
In the next days a new update will be released. Paul Burkey is working on version 1.25, which will be included on the CD "Foundation: Directors Cut". The support for Foundation and FoundationDC will be continued.

Paul Burkey answered to an eMail:

Great! You will certainly not have to wait quite so long for this new game to arive! You'll be playing it for christmas!

The re-release CD, "Foundation: Directors Cut" will be released as soon as possible. I'm currently compiling the CD myself. It will contain the original game but with the next update (V1.25) already installed. If you already have the original Foundation CD then you can download the update from the Foundation Homepage or possibly find it on a PD disk or cover of a Magazine. However the price of "Foundation: Directors Cut" will be much cheaper than the original Foundation (Probably 50 DM) so for anyone who doesn`t yet have Foundation, this is an ideal chance to get it.
Foundation's Edge will be a whole new game. More details of both products will be made available in the next week. Also, you might like to know that Foundation is now published by Epic Marketing (Islona). This will be announced in the next few days but you are free to publish that information if you wish.

Flightsimulator "Flight Gear" Is Open Source
Amiga game writers should have look at the titlelink, where source code of the flight sim "Flight Gear" can be found. A hardware accelerated MESA or Open GL is required, so this should be an ideal project for a Warp3D powered MESA PPC Amiga. (ps) (Translation: unk)

Amiga in K1 Reportage (German TV)
Robert Wahnsiedler writes:
Yesterday, about 1:00 AM, I stumbled across a repeat of "K1 - Die Reportage", and what did my tired eyes see in a report - an Amiga 4000. :) -.
It was about payment on internet by credit card, and how easy it is being cheated. They showed an interview with Evrim Serim (sp?), a long-standing Amiga user and co-author of the book Hackerland. It was briefly shown how easy it is for a "pro" to hack into a simple site, and read out the credit card data. The interview was made in his room, where he sat in front of an Amiga 4000, which was easily recognized by keyboard and desktop. :) The screen was not that much visible, but the great Boing ball sticking to the monitor :). Great advertising for insiders... :). (ps) (Translation: unk)

Heise: New Amiga with Transmeta-CPU and Linux?
Heise (producers of the reknown computer magazine c't) writes:
Another veil of secrecy around the company Transmeta was lifted by the ClieNT Server NEWS in their issue 310, dated August 2nd, 1999. There, it sais that the Californian high-tech company has won its first OEM customer in Amiga. Officially, both companies remain quiet, Amiga just hints at the hardware used in a Product / Technology Brief. (ps) (Translation: unk)

VWP: Virtual News
Michael Pfeiffer writes:
Temporary result: AmigaNG survey
The survey on the subject AmigaNG has a temporary result. The new Amiga might - at least among the users already possessing an Amiga - become a full success. Over 64% of all users want to buy the new powerhorse directly when available or within 3 months. Those who have probably been set back by the Linux announcement and do no longer want to own an Amiga are a minority of under 5%. The survey, which gives important information to VWP for their future software development, is continuing (link above).

New: Browser hit list
The VWP homepage now collects statistical data on the browsers used. This statistic is different from others in that it recognizes browsers spoofing as Mozilla (like AWeb, Voyager and MSIE). So, there is a hitlist available offering a real insight in market shares and usage of browsers in the Amiga szene. This hitlist can be found at the link above, under "statistics".

New: WaveTracer DS & AudioForum
The VWP homepage now offers a special forum for the WaveTracer DS and related Audio questions. Here, you can state questions, post hints, give tips and state your POV. This forum should prove being a quick help with problems related to WaveTracer. (ps) (Translation: unk)
